A Statement from Mr. Frazier's page:

"A year ago, I wrote a play (as part of a class assignment) entitled “Come and Take It.” It is set amid the Texas Revolution and Republic. The protagonists are Susannah Dickenson (Alamo eye-witness and survivor) and Joe, a slave owned by William B. Travis who fights at the Alamo, and survives to tell its story. I took the class because a friend famous for producing playwrights was retiring and I wanted to see what all went into writing a play—I didn’t know I would have to actually write a play.

But...here we are.

Few people realize that most of what we know about the Battle of the Alamo comes to us from an illiterate woman and enslaved man, both in their early 20s. That is the beginning of a good, but gritty, story."
